Second Annual Giving Day a Great Success

The Beloit College community is generous and showed its heart and soul during its second annual Giving Day on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. In just 24 hours, the college raised over $65,000 from more than 450 supporters.

Not only did the gifts far surpass the original goal of $25,000, the event also raised $25,000 more than last year. Beloit is touched by the fantastic response received from supporters and is grateful to be backed by such a strong foundation of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends. These gifts help make ‪#‎BeloitPossible for the next generation of Turtles, Bucs, and Beloiters.

The unconditional support, enthusiastically offered by our alumni, parents, and friends is a tribute to the character of our community, and the value that we all collectively recognize in the mission we seek to advance. We at Beloit are privileged to have a community so willing to invest in the future of our great institution, and our students. For this, we are grateful,” said Mark Wold’95, Senior Director of Alumni & Parent Relations and Annual Support.

Thank you to all who supported Beloit College’s second annual Giving Day. As College President Scott Bierman often says, it’s “turtles all the way down.”

09_01_gray_sweatshirtTurtle Creek Bookstore's showing off - and selling off - new merchandise this week, with one offer about to expire. The inside word is that the Champion sportswear offer (buy one, get the second for 1/2 off) will expire after this Saturday. If you're in the market for a tshirt, sweatshirt, or hat, the time to move is now. Peter Fronk, bookstore manager, says the Champion hooded sweatshirts are moving fast, but not as fast as the new blue and gold scarves and winter hats. Trendwatchers around town are no doubt predicting a very Harry Potter-esque winter fashion season as a result.

Fronk is expecting some new items to arrive shortly and new special offers - which may include discounts on Adidas and Jansport wear - to be coming in the near future.
